I just returned from a trip utilizing Indian Travel Consultants. We only had a week but wanted to see the TajMahal and a Tiger Park. ITC was amazing. They arranged a driver to pick us up at the airport in Delhi. The hotels they arranged were great as were the guides they arranged in Agra and Jaipur. They also arranged two exclusive safaris in Ranthambore national park. The guide and driver there were also outstanding. We did have the luck to see a beautiful tiger. The driver that ITC arranged could not have been better. Nareesh was outstanding. My friend was a little under the weather and at a restroom stop on the road, Nareesh bought my friend a pillow to make her more comfortable. This was all arranged at a very reasonable price. I give ITC 5 stars.
I have visited many Internet travel agencies to obtain what I anticipated to be fare and equitable before identifying Indian Travel Consultants as the best value available. Being an educated American consumer who values customer service, none other stood head and shoulders above the rest as Indian Travel Consultants. I hit pay dirt with owner FerozBakto where the meetings of the minds were solidified as we both had the same thought process on our valued management philosophies. The customer is always right even when he is wrong. We easily iron out the minor differences and moved out in a partnership of friendship and trust only to be repeat business again to Indian Travel Consultants.
We spent about 21 nights in India - Delhi, Agra, then we traipsed through Rajasthan, and then ended up back in Delhi. I provided ITC a rough plan of what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go, and ITC gave us a suggested itinerary including hotels for the entire trip. It also provided a car and driver for about 17 days while we were touring outside of Delhi. The cost was $3222 total for the two of us.The price also included airport arrival and departure transfers in Delhi, an elephant ride in Jaipur, and a camel ride in Jaisalmer. Not included were admission fees (museums, forts, palaces, etc), local tour guides (we didn't use any), and meals (except breakfasts, which were included with the hotels). The only hotel that I changed was the one in Delhi, for which we paid more money (but it was probably worth it). The other hotels ranged from adequate to quite nice, except for our desert outing in Jaisalmer, which was rather spartan. I tried to change a couple of other hotels, but ITC was reluctant to do so, and in the end the hotels turned out all right.
We want to thank all the attention and services offered during our trip to India this past February. We were a group of five girls and this was the first time we visited India. From the moment we contacted indian travel Consultants until the last day of our trip, we had the security of being in the hands of professionals, always concerned about our well being and if we enjoyed our stay. All the itinerary prepared by your company was very well connected, we had no problem, all the hotels, trains, flights, drivers, guides showed us their professionalism. We appreciate your human qualities to treat the customer.
It was nice talking to you earlier today. Feroz, I would like to stress that we had a wonderful time in India and am glad that you had made it possible and I thank you for same.Regretfully there were few incidents that could have totally spoiled our trip, however in the end everything turned o.k.
I would like to say thank you for calling and checking us almost on daily basis. A heartful thanks for a suprise birthday cake for my daughter.A special thank you to you & your wife for providing us with morning tea & snacks on the first day of arrival in India.It was such a lovely gesture which we really appreciated. I hope our line of communication continues and we will do our best to promote your business from this end.
Feroz has asked me to contact you about his agency. I first travelled through his agency eight years ago. We arrived with no plan and spoke to Feroz who put together a great itinery that allowed us to see Rajastan, Varanasi, Agra and a gorgeous town called Orcha that Feroz suggested. We had a driver and car and stayed at a range of hotels, all unteresting and comfortable without being to much like a standard Western hotel.
The journey that I contracted included: 18 days bed and breakfast, entrances to all the monuments and places of interest, a 'car with driver at your disposal 24 hours 24 Oreca would lead us through Rajasthan, Varanasi and transfer to air return by train, all for much less than half of what I would have spent addressing an agency in our country.
We are a Catalan couple (Yolanda & Roger) who travelled to India in August '07. Our idea was to do all the trip round the Rajhastan and some other cities by train. But we heard the possibility to contract the services of an indian company, to have a driver for us, to book all the hotels for advance, and we tried.
